She will also discuss other projects and address some of the crucial questions which inform her approach to unearthing historic material and in-depth research. Her projects often uncover silenced historical narratives, and investigate movement, transformation, exchange, and resistance through a diverse range of media and strategies, including film, photography, social interventions, installation, performance, writing, and sound.
